Welcome to Italy Class!
We are very excited to welcome you to Year 2! This term our topic is 'Tell Me A Story'. The children will start off immersed in traditional tales and fairy stories before moving onto autobiographies of famous historical people.
Year 2 is a SAT year, which means that throughout May, the children will be required to sit maths and reading tests. I will be holding a separate meeting later on in September to go through the SATs tests, end of year expectations and answer any questions that you may have. Further information will be sent home shortly about the meeting.
PPA Cover: This year we will have Mrs Willard covering the class on a Tuesday morning.
PE: This will take place on a Tuesday morning and a Wednesday afternoon, please ensure children have full, correct kit in school on these days. Any children with long hair will need it tied back and any earrings taken out or covered with tape.
This year, Italy class will be able to use the Cookery room on a Thursday afternoon. Is you are able to help the children, please let me know!
This year, there will be a gradual increase in the volume of homework Year 2 children receive. They will get daily maths homework that should take about 5-10 minutes to complete. Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week. Spelling homework will be given out throughout the term, taking words from the spelling quest. There will be one piece of topic homework, due towards the end of term.
